The Suzanne Keech Memorial Fund*

Higher Achievement is proud to establish the Suzanne Keech Memorial Fund to sustain and promote her
legacy of ensuring Higher Achievement scholars get into top high schools. Suzanne’s passion for
Higher Achievement was deep and endless.She served as a powerful board member for many years,
and we miss her tremendously. The Fund will help support high school placement activities in DC Metro
and Baltimore, including orienting families on the local high school landscape, and matching scholars
with the high schools that maximize their promise and potential.

The Sarah Rosen Scholars Program*

Thanks to the Sarah Rosen Scholars program, Higher Achievement’s services don’t end when a student graduates from eighth grade. The Sarah Rosen Scholars program recruits six high-school-aged alumni to sign up for a two-year summer internship that allows students to intern in an office environment for four days a week and focus on preparing for college one day a week. The first class of interns started the program in the summer of 2016. Sarah Rosen’s legacy continues with this important program for DC Metro Alumni.

The Halbert L. White Memorial Director’s Fund*

The Halbert L. White Memorial Director’s Fund will advance the mission of Higher Achievement, a charity
that has been strongly supported by Bates White. Honoring the legacy of Hal White, this fund will enable
the Higher Achievement leadership to invest in new initiatives and strategic partnerships to
further this important mission.

*To donate to these Memorial Funds please specify your generous contribution as “In Memory Of” when filling out the online form. Thank you for donating to these funds. They represent extraordinary people and champions of Higher Achievement.
